a) what is the mass of the rocket.

b) what is its acceleration at lift -off

c)How fast will it be moving if it acceleartion at this rates for 10 minutes.

d) How high will it be after 10 minutes.

1 the weight is mg, solve for m

2 Lift off force=mg + ma solve for a

vf=at change t to seconds

h=1/2 a t^2

The reality is that the weight of the rocket decreases as fuel is burned. I suppose your teacher wants to ignore that.

Thank you Mr Bob Pursley
